Police: 'Beware of phishing calls'
Police said residents have reported three types of phishing calls.
The first type involves a caller claiming to be a relative in trouble and requesting money for bail, legal fees or transportation. The second involves a caller claiming to be a public utility company, telling the resident their account is past due and threatening to terminate service.
The third involves a caller identifying the resident by name, telling them they have won money in some form of lottery.
